As a lifelong artist, Beth understood her process in the studio. As a new teacher, Beth wanted more education to bolster the classroom experience. The University of Missouri's art education online doctorate, housed in Department of Learning, Teaching and Curriculum, expanded Beth's expertise. The program can be tailored for college-level teaching, research or leadership. Now, Beth has a balanced methodology for approaching her art and her students.
